Lady Elyssa Yamato Amaterasu Wentworth is a centuries-old vampire who's been given a new servant-Jacob, a total alpha male unaccustomed to submitting to any woman's wishes. What really binds Jacob to her are not her sensual midnight hungers, but something far more provocative. It stirs her blood, renews her life, and awakens her soul like only true love can. The passion between Elyssa and Jacob yields something else unexpected-a shared history that reaches back through the centuries and is fated to challenge their destiny like nothing ever will again.**Summary taken from Goodreads**
This was my first Joey Hill book and it wont be my last. The Vampire Queen's Servant by Joey .W. Hill is book one in her 'Vampire Queen Series', it's certainly not for the faint of heart or if you are used to something a little more tame and vanilla. This book delves into BDSM and D/s in a big way. Jacob is one of those sexy Alpha men that has you drooling, nothing about him says submissive but when he sees Lady Lyssa he wants her, he learns her ways, how to look after her, be her servant. It's usually the male protagonist who is the more dominant so i was very intrigued to see how it played out with Lyssa in that role. Jacob doesn't submit easily, making the vampire queen work for his submission leaving her frustrated at times but that just adds more to his appeal for her, she's used to "yes" people.
It doesn't all go in Jacob's favour though, certain scenes were pretty brutal to read, the threat of male on male rape, a forced ménage à trois and group voyeurism are just some acts Jacob has to go through to become Lyssa's servant. The vampire politics are quite strict, Lyssa needs Jacob's submission if he is to exist in the vampire world and not undermine her authority.
Very much character laden i loved this book for alot of reasons, yes it has enough erotica to please the smuttiest of bitches, it has an underline mystery of past history and who is the bad guy, but it's the structure of character in Jacob and Lyssa i loved best. The author gives you great depth in these characters, they're not perfect and she shows you that and for all the politics and rules in both the vampire world and the D/s world all they both want really is love. I liked the tender moments Lyssa had, she was harsh at times so the contrast in her nicer side was good to see.
This is an on-going series so in The Vampire Queen's servant you don't get all the resolves you would in a stand alone book, but it just made me more eager to follow on with book two The Mark of the Vampire Queen.
If you like paranormal, vampires, biting, erotica, moresomes and pedicures given by a sexy alpha male then this book is a must read for you.
I give The Vampire Queen's Servant 4 Sparkles out of 5 - A Fang-tastic read.
